"Kes was truly something special"

Kestrel was bred by our close friend Carol Vola out of her Abby bred to our Pfalcon. When we first laid eyes upon Kestrel, we thought she was one of the prettiest puppies we had ever seen - she actually gave us goose bumps!   Kestrel has been a delight to live with, a delight in the show ring, a consistent worker as a personal gun dog (nice natural honor), and a delight as a beautiful youthful veteran. She gave our daughter, Danielle, a lot of success as her  junior's and occasional special's bitch. Danielle and Kestrel went BISS for two consecutive years at he Conestoga Vizsla Club Specialty when Danielle was ages 11 and 12 years. Kestrel almost died in 2002 from a tick borne disease then called "equine ehrlichiosis". It was a slow process, but her immune system is amazing, and she battled back to complete health. After a 3 year hiatus from breeding for health reasons, she easily whelped her last litter in January, 2006. We feel very blessed to have shared our lives with Kes and for the wonderful offspring she has left behind.
